Pupils at Bourn Primary – Home Learning
As we are unable to come to school at present, we are thinking of lots of ways of keeping you busy and occupied! Class Blogs are now up and running on PurpleMash so that you are able to keep in touch with your class mates and respond to challenges from your teachers! We also thought we could keep you informed about all the different resources available online to help pass the time until we can be back together again. This page will be updated regularly so please keep checking back for ideas and inspiration!
